Reviewed 23 July 2014

Guess this hotel gets plenty of business from pilgrims on the Camino so has very little incentive to improve or renovate. As a result the rooms are very tired looking. One positive was that the wifi was very fast and the room was clean.

This was the first overnight stop for our group of 28 travelling along the Camino to Santiago de Compostela. We had all been on the go since the early hours of the morning leaving Gatwick and were pretty tired by the time we arrived.
The bedroom was average with dull ochre coloured paint on the walls and mid green soft furnishings. The carpet would have been better if they had removed quite a large stain on it. The bathroom was clean and very modern.
The evening meal was forgettable with a crème caramel which would have been handy to use as a replacement if you lost your tennis ball when playing a match. The following morning's continental breakfast was acceptable but not memorable.
Overall an uninspiring stay.

This hotel is well located on the Camino, as others have said. I was with a tour party of 30 who had booked half-board. The dinner served to the group was not particularly tasty or generous: vegetable soup, a small plate of ungarnished meatballs and creme caramel. The bathroom was nice and the bedroom adequate, but the mattresses were very thin: I slept well enough, but mainly because I had been travelling since 4am. Breakfast was better than I expected, but our tour leader had taken care to lower our expectations of Spanish hotel breakfasts. If revisiting the town I would probably try another hotel.

We didn't have to look far to find this lovely hotel right on the Camino street and across from the pilgrim basic accommodation. We did not book in advance and found our room late in the morning before the demand got heavy. It was a Saturday which meant Market Day and we had a delightful time exploring this small city. Staff were kind and helpful. Room was clean and met our basic needs.

Room #108 had two twin beds with firm mattresses, good water pressure and plenty of hot water needed after Camino walk, wifi worked well, price is reasonable, and room was clean. Staff is also very kind and helpful. Air conditioning is only downstairs in public area and thankfully wasn't needed in the room. My only complaint is that there were signs posted in the lobby and room stating the hotel is not responsible for lost or stolen articles and that guests needed to make sure they locked their rooms and kept a close eye on their own valuables. I, like many older pilgrims walking the Camino, was having my luggage transported hotel-to-hotel. When I arrived I saw that my bag was left unsecured and near the front door. If theft is an issue it would seem the hotel should place guest's luggage in a safe location until the guest's arrival. At least that is how it has been handled at the previous hotels along the Camino. Thankfully my bag was not stolen.

Santo Domingo is a wonderful stop on the Camino and the hotel is perfectly located
Extreme sense of help and dedication to customers (ask Lucia for anything, she'll manage)
Rooms are spacious (air condition does not work on ours but the night is cool enough)
Price is very attractive for the hotel standard
If you can ask for a room with odd number which does not open on the Calle Mayor if you want a perfect quiet night

We arrived in Santo Domingo de la Calzada with no accommodation pre-booked and just happened upon this hotel. We went to the Tourism Office anyway, but they could offer nothing else that was as good for the price. It is comfortable with nice lounges, friendly reception staff, and the rooms are spacious and clean. I can't quite recognise the photo accompanying this Tripadvisor entry, but we found the hotel to be well situated, with one entrance facing out to the old town and all its shops and restaurants, and another entrance facing out to where our car was parked. We would recommend this hotel to any traveller looking for a good, clean, comfortable and friendly hotel in Santo Domingo de la Calzada,
